Appeals & Writs of Habeas Corpus

Orange County Criminal Appeal Attorney

Do you have a criminal conviction that has left you with fines you cannot afford, a criminal record that will affect your job or even time in jail. It is comforting to know that not all criminal convictions and sentences are final. It is still possible to avoid these through an Appeal or a Writ of Habeas Corpus with the retained assistance of a Criminal Appeal Attorney.

Appealing a Criminal Conviction

In certain cases, a criminal conviction can be appealed and a case then re-tried if there is evidence of an error that occurred during the handling of the original trial. These types of cases are not similar to other criminal cases and they require the representation of a criminal trial attorney who is experienced in appeals. They require an appellate attorney like those found at Kenney Legal Defense.

Appellate Issues Handled at Kenney Legal Defense:

Direct Appeal of Felony and Misdemeanor (State and Federal Court)

Writs of Habeas Corpus (State & Federal)

Motion for New Trial
